The kids had a blast doing this activity and my student that had missed also received mastery as well. You just can't beat 100% mastery with this lesson. You can check it out here. Everything you need for a wonderful shapes lesson.
I couldn't leave without showing our lizard from show and tell. Some of the kids where like, Awesome!! while some of the kids, mostly girls where like , eewwwww! Let's just say, I wasn't the first one in line to hold it. He ate mangos and crickets while he visited. His name is Gizmo and he was very calm and still. I thought he did very well, especially with all my little amazed firsties around him asking a million questions. I have to say, it was a first for me. A lizard for show and tell. But these are the ones the kids love and will never forget about, the ones they learn the most from. So if I have to touch a lizard, then I must. But I'll be thinking EWWWW! the whole time.
What you do for the love of our kiddos!!!!!
